Fix the error 32777 “Unable to establish connection with the activation server” Windows Xp.
Usually this error has nothing to do with internet connection itself. You can browse the internet just fine, but when activating Windows Xp it tells you can’t connect to activation server. So, here is the list most of common solutions fixing this problem.
Checking your computer date and time
This is one of the most common solution for error 32777. Make sure your computer date and time are correct. Correct your system date, restart and try activating again. In case you don’t have administrator permissions you may change the date in BIOS or in safe mode. If this step therefore does not resolve the issue or your system’s time is correct, continue to next step.
Updating your system
This step is far more time consuming. Because Windows Xp activation service relies on Internet Explorer, it should update to latest supported version, which is 8.
Internet Explorer 8 32-bit – Download
Internet Explorer 8 64-bit – Download
After the install restart you computer and try activating again. If it still does not help try installing the latest service pack SP 3 on your machine.
Now you should be able to get the latest updates through Windows Update page. To update your system:
- Open “Internet Explorer 8“.
- Now select “Safety” and then “Windows Update“.
- On the left menu select “Express” option.
- Wait for the updates to process.
- Now click “Review and install updates“.
- Now restart your computer and try again.
Changing Certificate Revocation in Internet Explorer
Sometimes above step does not resolve the activation error 32777. In that case, disable certificate revocation options in Internet Explorer:
- Open “Internet Explorer“.
- Now select “Tools” and then “Internet Options“.
- Open “Advanced” tab.
- Find and uncheck “Check for publisher’s certificate revocation” option.
- Also find and uncheck”Check for server certificate revocation (requires restart)” option.
- Then click “Apply“ and “Ok“.
- Finally restart your computer.
Activating using telephone method
Last resort would be activating your system using telephone method. Just click the “Telephone” button in the Activate Windows Wizard. Then you will need make a call to Microsoft.

When calling the activation center, just keep a single word in mind on the first question. When the automated assistant asks how many computers has this copy of Windows has been on, the magical answer is ‘one’.
As long as one says that & follows the prompts, the chance of successful activation rises to 98%. Of course there’s exceptions where this won’t work, like using (example) a Dell COA to activate a HP computer. This warning usually presents itself before a phone call.
Be careful & most of the time your legit copy of Windows will be activated in 2-3 minutes.
i just spent 3 hours getting this fucking desktop computer to work because i unplugged it while away from vacation. first the monitor couldnt find a signal. so i had to unplug everything multiple times and shut the power on and off. finally get a signal but then it gets stuck on the splash start screen. wouldnt let me go into the bios or anything. so then i have to take all the fucking ram out of the computer. one by one replacing it, restarting, replacing restarting. finally it lets me go into bios. i dunno wtf i pressed but i got it to start finally. then what happens? it says you need to activate windows. wtf. so i try to activate windows. it says no internet connection even though there is one. so i google that problem. says your bios prob says wrong date. i go into bios it says 2008. so i change it to 2019. it activates, starts, runs like new again. wtf all because i unplugged the god damn power supply for a week. anyways your page helped me activate it by simply changing the time
Just find a product key online for the Edition of Windows XP that you want to activate, or use a product key sticker that you might already have for the appropriate Edition of Windows XP. After that, click the Telephone Activation option, and it’ll give you an installation ID. Click “change product key” and enter the product key and click “Update”. After that, you’ll be given a different installation ID. Give that number a call if you have an active phone subscription and if you have a smartphone, Microsoft will give you an option to send you a SMS with a link to help you activate it, or type in “m.vivr.io” on Google and select the first option that is given in the results.
Or click this link:
After that, enter the installation ID into either the phone keypad or on the browser in the appropriate field, and it’ll generate a code for you to enter. You just need to enter that code and it’ll successfully activate your Windows. It doesn’t even need to be your own product key, it can be any product key that is valid of the Edition of Windows. That’s the way to get through the Windows XP Activation. Many of the cracks are useless. This is the best method since it genuinely activates Windows XP regardless if the product key is yours or not.
